Song 19       A Girl Who Gets Around

Melody by Lily Brooke. Vocals and guitar by Dayna Lynn
Lyrics: David Gardiner

IĎm a girl who gets around
Every corner of this town
And I know just how to please
These young men from overseas

Or if youíre with the IRA
That is totally okay
For itís only night-time play
Just a different shade of grey
And Iím a girl who likes to get around

IĎm a girl who gets around
In a very troubled town
Not a Catholic or a Prod
ĎCause I donít believe in God
Which you may think rather odd

Convent school in sweet Tralee
But the sisters would agree
It just wasnít right for me
So to here I had to flee
Iím just a girl who likes to get around

I havenít any politics, donít cheer for any side
I havenít any hatred, my heart is open wide
Iím full of love for everyone
In this I take a pride
Iím just a girl who likes to get around

Iím a little like your mother
And a little like a priest,
So tell me what youíve bottled-up that needs to be released
You can tell the girl that likes to get around

If youíre lonely or unhappy you can always come to me
I can make your burden lighter for a very modest fee
You can tell the girl who likes to get around
Tell the girl who found a way to make her favourite hobby pay
You can tell the girl who likes to get around
